A group of pigs crossing a road in North London, 1931

July 4, 2013

It was acceptable to walk pigs in London back in the days. In this picture, a drove of pigs is crossing Camden Road in the north of London. The animals were likely taken towards Caledonian Market on North Road. The market used to be the largest in North London.

It’s very difficult to picture a scene like this anywhere in London these days.

Bonus fact: A group of pigs is called a drift or drove.
